The wine-growing region is located in the south of Hungary in the Hungarian Plain (Alföld). Until 1997 it was called Hajós-Vaskút. The climate is characterised by extremely dry, hot summers. The vineyards on loess soil (as opposed to sand in the Alföld) cover about 2,100 hectares of vines. Mainly white wines are produced. The most important grape varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cserszegi Fűszeres, Chardonnay, Kadarka, Kékfrankos (Blaufränkisch), Rajnairizling (Rhine Riesling) and Zweigelt.
For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.Dr. Christa Hanten
